I didn't watch the show, and the extent of my knowledge of it is pretty much what I've read in this thread. But why on earth would CBS choose to premier a show like this in the Fall, on a Sunday night, after football? Have they forgotten the concept of audience flow? IF this was a good show, it sounds like the kindof thing that you sit on for a mid-season replacement. Wait until CBS broadcast the Tony's, promote the heck out of it during that broadcast, and THEN air it. Then it may have a chance. The likelihood of large parts of the football watching audience saying "Hey, I want to stick around through 60 Minutes to watch a musical drama about a casino in Nevada"? Not likely.
